This paper examines the article, "Psychological Reactance in College Students: Family-of-Origin Predictors," written by Walter Buboltz, Patrick Johnson and Kevin Woller. The paper explains the authors' intended purpose in performing this study and how they investigated the theories they discuss. The paper also briefly discusses the methods and the results of the study.
From the Paper:"This research has demonstrated that investigation of family relationships may be the key to providing better outcomes for clients with high levels of psychological reactance. The fact that only a third of this studies participants are from divorced families-of-origin may have made these results slightly disproportionate; in addition, college students might be expected to be more independent and opinionated than those who left after high-school. These problems might be addressed by later studies, or by different research methods. Interviews and treatment notes might also provide greater clues as to the extent of family influence upon the participants, which might not have been revealed in this questionnaire. The authors note that further research might make use of different cultural norms when devising the studies; non-Western cultures may provide different answers, and still produce reactive clients. The implications for counselling are obviously significant, but further research needs to be done before counsellors make any assessment of highly reactive clients. Other pressures should not be forgotten in this process, and further studies could also look at the relationship between high levels of psychological reactance, family function, and later pressures upon the client."
